One of the best things to remember from the trips in the country is the experience of spending the night under the stars. One of your most important companions in these nights is the sleeping bag, the friend that never leaves your side, whereever you go.
Sleeping bags are available in many different types, depending on where the person intends to use it and of course depending on the season he or she will need it. So, when going out for buying a sleeping bag, take a careful look at the temperature ratings. But one must also keep in mind whether you are a person who usually likes to sleep in a warm or cold bed. A good indicator of the feeling you will have in the sleeping bag is its loft, but you will also have to consider its shape. It’s very important for a sleeping bag to be big enough to sleep in , but also for it to be small enough when packed, so that it would not be hard to carry.
While mummy bags are very easy and warm, you might indeed feel like a mummy trapped in it. You might want to choose a barrel bag, because you can really strech out in such a sleeping bag. The bad thing about is that it does not have the thermal properties of the mummy bag. In case you go on a trip in the summer , a rectangular bag does the trick!
It is a known fact that the hood and the neck yoke must be very efficient in protecting your head and neck. The footbox of a mummy sleeping bag or the footoval of a barrel bag must also protect feet from cold and bad whether, but also allow a person to keep a natural position while sleeping.
Therefore, choosing the most suitable sleeping bag can be quite difficult. I would give it a lot of time and hard thinking if I were you. Only then you can say that you are ready to make a decision.
So now, all packed up for a trip in the country!
